Pinecone Moonshine

Nic

Run by Nic TVG, Pinecone Moonshine is a growing collection of Drum Funk (a style of Drum and Bass) and abstract music highlighting the label's specific tone. Majority of the tracks are melancholy collages of noise, heavily processed samples, and atmospherics driven by broken break beats and heavy sub. Recent projects focus on combining Drum Funk with other genres such as ambient/noise and free jazz.

Formication :: Fracture :: Indidjinous :: Takeshi Nakamura :: Sub Pinecone Moonshine's anniversary release ranges from an acoustic guitar transformed into a harrowing noise assault by Formication to deep, atmospheric drum and bass by Fracture and Indidjinous to alien robot dance music from Takeshi Nakamura to a melodic piece by Sub using minimal synthetic drums. Stylistic differences aside, this is a cohesive collection that conjures gray skies, barren futuristic planets, and pushing back...

J. Digital and Nic TVG bring the first collaborative release between Pinecone Moonshine and Digibeat Music. Both labels specialize in break driven Drum and Bass and Drum Funk. Ranging from minimal beats and bass to amen choppage and from desperate atmospheric tones to distant sounding melodies, this release gives a glimpse into these two labels.

dgoHn starts The Painting Space with distant, melodic pads that follow along the high-energy Tighten Up break. Creative change ups and a loud sub make this track always feel like it is moving forward. [www.myspace.com/dgohn] Ibunshi uses intricate details and techy sounds to pull the listener inside this track. Once inside, erratic edits fly around until letting up into atmospherics like seeing the sky just after a meteor shower. [trig.com/ibunshi] Fushara picks up right in step with the...

The title track starts the album with a desperate tone using idm influenced effects to drop into choppy, rolling drums and a heavy sub. Mantis continues the despondent mood mixing glitch with the amen before breaking down into a slow dream-like quality. A sparse ambient piece follows to lead into Sleepwalking, that even with heavy use of distortion, has an almost ethereal state with its slow groove and melancholy pads that stretch for minutes. Circuits provides a brutal counterpart by matching...

Wasting Away on a Seaweed Farm begins with textures of noise building. The drums filter in and drop into the sparse but weighty sub. As the track progresses, new elements of noise, spacey pads, and another distinct drum break move the main drums through several edits. Ambient pads and a subtle half-step break start off These Ugly Thoughts. Bring in the distorted bass kicks and the track quickly drops into a thrashy, rolling drum break backed by a punchy sub. Short interludes of 4/4 bass kicks...

Digibeat Music and Pinecone Moonshine team up again to bring you two takes on Eshaton and Jiva's Sense of Spring: an ambient track layered with beats and subtle uplifting melodies. Eschaton's Beginning adds a heavy half-step beat and deeper pads while Jiva's Ending adds broken amen fragments and a dry, filtered bassline.

Sanity & Soundness Fanu :: dgoHn :: Ibunshi :: Indidjinous :: Macc The only instructions were: make a piece of Drum & Bass inspired from a free jazz piece. Opening with the sparse plucking of double bass, Fanu builds up to a fast pace, funky track that steps up the intensity even more with a massive bass line. dgoHn takes Drum Funk to another realm with an improvised sound that feels effortless but contains countless layers and details. Ibunshi and Indidjinous took their set of techy...

The intro of Soul Cooper carefully builds suspense using a subtle break that only occasionally rolls all the way out. When the full break drops, combined with the gigantic bass, an attitude is created that could incite riots. Soundbwoy feels like a dubstep track with few snares and heavy emphasis on kicks, rides, and an upfront sub. A few words and effects echo about above a mildly distorted harmony guiding the listener into a relaxed state. Tracks mastered by Macc.

Sharpening the Blade starts out Parallel's Yellow room with a high energy track backed with mellow pads and bright atmospherics colored like the end of summer. The tone starts to turn with Stuck in the Yellow Room. Still atmospheric with broken beats, it begins to become self reflective preparing the listener for My Beautiful Destruction. The distorted noise of Part 1 takes its time to build a path to the heaviest track of the EP. Part 2 uses intricate drum editing with a snarling bassline...

Formication creates auditory chaos with their remix: Rust. Long builds of 4/4 pulsing kicks drop into a wall of distorted, filtered noise with glimpses of the original acoustic guitar as it is chopped morphed and turned inside out. The next four remixes dive deep into the atmosphere with both morphing ambients and down-tempo break work. Formication's unique style is present through the entire piece. All rights reserved. Tracks mastered by Macc.

At 158bpm, this track lacks no vigor as the main break and flow of the Rusted Instruments is torn apart by the interjection of an aggressive drum roll. Layers of somber effects and a guitar line confirm that this a melancholy track. A Day Without Caffeine uses sparse drums and a heavy sub build an image of being alone in space. Layers fade in and out and extra percussion floats by with this track pushing forward and sometimes feeling like it is coming unraveled.
